1  Mini Daily Prophet earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lil_lisa on: May 20, 2012 07:42:16 AM
I've been hard at crafting the past few days and here's what i've come up with!

In the past i've made my daily prophet earrings like this:

But this time around I added beads into the chain:

I think I like the beads in the chain a lot more. It adds a little something. Smiley I also used a post type earring in some of them vs. the usual hook. Which type of earring do you prefer? I'd like to know others opinions.

3  Glass Toppers like Resin? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by lil_lisa on: December 28, 2011 04:21:48 PM
Does anyone know where to get these or what they're called exactly? They're like glass beads or something you put on the metal back piece. These would be easier to do than dealing with resin so if anyone can help me out by even telling me what they're called, that'd be great. Smiley

These were made by PrettyLittleCharmsUK on Etsy.

Her descriptions on Etsy just say that each book page is "sealed beneath glass"

4  Harry Potter Mini Book Earrings & Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lil_lisa on: November 13, 2011 09:56:23 AM
I made these a while ago and never posted them here, oops.

Over the summer I made mini books out of all the Harry Potter books and made them into earrings.  It was a long process, but I was so proud of the way they turned out. Smiley Everything about the books was done from scratch. I printed out the covers, laminated them, and then cut many pages of paper to the same size. I folded the paper and smothered it in mod podge. I left it to dry overnight underneath a heavy object to stay closed. Also, the book size changes depending on the thickness of the actual book. Yes, I pay that much attention to detail. Smiley

Here are some pictures.

I also made a bracelet:

5  Lined Capri Sun Bag, Sour Cream & Onion Chip Bag & More in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lil_lisa on: June 25, 2011 09:02:51 PM
So I've been making a lot of stuff lately.

This first one took the longest time. & boy did my back hurt afterwards because I did the majority sitting on my floor instead of at a nice big table in a comfy chair. Ow. I used this great tutorial: http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=HOBO_BAG





This is my 3rd capri sun bag. The first two I made about 3 years ago and were 1/2 a capri sun taller. This one came out MUCH better than those. And I upgraded it by lining it and adding a zippered pocket.



And the last thing is a small zippered pouch made from "collaging" starburst wrappers into a sort of fabric.

Please let me know what you think of everything!  Smiley

6  Little Hair Bow...I need advice. Which do you like better? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by lil_lisa on: June 18, 2011 05:49:47 PM
So, I've been making these cute little bows. I started out doing them like this:

But then I saw someone on Etsy doing it slightly different and at the time I thought it looked better, but the way I've done it looks like this:

So, in the second version the fabric goes over the bottom part of the alligator clip. It looks cleaner and might hold up better than the first version, but I don't really like the way the fabric looks on the bottom. You can see the end of the middle sections, where as in the first style you don't see where the middle section meets cuz it's hidden by the clip.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix the 2nd way? Or should I just continue with the first way I was doing?

I know they are so similar, but I'm so particular and especially because I plan to sell these I want them to be perfect. Any feedback is appreciated!!!

I saw this picture on Tumblr and would really like to learn how to make the 2nd, 5th, & far right bracelets.

Does anyone know a pattern online or a book that has the pattern in it? Thanks so much.
